Lesson 1 – Data Visualization Fundamentals
This lesson covers the basics, such as data types, exploratory versus explanatory visualizations, the various ways to encode data (dots, lines, etc), and why visualization matters in the first place.
Lesson 2 – Design Principles
This lesson helps students to use design to get the most out of their visualizations. It answers questions like, which type of chart should I use for an analysis? Or what colors are best? How do I communicate with using size, shape, etc.? You’ll learn more about the importance of limited the amount of data presented in an analysis, and how to use data with integrity.
Lesson 3 – Creating Visualizations with Tableau
In this lesson, you'll learn how to use Tableau to create basic visualizations. First, you'll learn how to import data and create basic charts. Then, you'll use colors, shapes, and other tools to dig deep into data. Finally, you'll use calculations to create new data columns from existing data.
Lesson 4 – Telling Stories with Tableau
You create visualizations to tell stories with your data. Tableau enables this through creating dashboards and narrated stories. In this lesson, you'll learn how to build dashboards and stories with individual figures.
